Hidden at the end of the Wolfenstein 2 launch trailer, seen below, is a brief glimpse at a coughing and spluttering Hitler himself. Well, the back of his head. So yes, Hitler is in Wolfenstein 2.
You may be wondering “Why is this interesting?” Well the previous two Wolfenstein titles, The New Order and The Old Blood, included brief mentions of and references to Mr Hitler. So the new Wolfenstein 2 marks his on-screen debut in this new series of Wolfenstein games.
In the trailer there’s a decent amount of Nazi killing by way of guns, throwing knives, grenade lobs, flamethrowers, and melee takedowns.
The former Nazi leader has played an important role in the Wolfenstein series over the years. He appeared in Beyond Castle Wolfenstein as part of an assassination attempt mission. As well as id Software’s Wolfenstein 3D as a boss during a mission in which he turns into Mecha Hitler.
What we don’t know is if you’ll be able to fight Hitler in Wolfenstein 2. But if you can, it’ll be the first time in a Wolfenstein game since Wolf 3D.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is due Friday, November 27. Let us know if you will be picking up the first person shooter in the comments below.
